"Very helpful in terms of CV and cover letter improvement as well as getting new insights and support regarding my job search.
Very helpful especially for foreigners who have to adopt to American formal standards; it's important to know which networks are useful and what job search platforms can be used."

#1 is the easiest: "Things will be different." Very different.
Now that we've got that out of the way, let's see how you can learn about nine more German job interview basics. What should you expect as an American who is looking for employment with a German company in Berlin, Munich, Stuttgart or Hamburg, for example?
Americans in Germany (and Germans in the U.S., of course) commonly experience a "culture shock" when entering the foreign work environment for the first time.
Newcomers are often humbled by their own lack of actual knowledge about the other country's (workplace) culture. Those are important lessons to learn. Don't waste the opportunity with "better" or "worse" comparisons. Think "different."
To help you prepare for a successful outcome, we have prepared a quiz for you on the Germany-USA Career Center website. It highlights some common situations American applicants face in their job interviews with German companies, Job Interview Basics for Americans in Germany on the Germany-USA Career Center website.
Our experts can help you find a new position fast - and save on your search costs.
